MAX - Boudoir Art Mystery

I need a bit of help with this one !!

I recently spotted this framed print for sale on a well known online auction site.

The composition and format just about qualifies as boudoir art. For me, it is a little tame, the girl isn't pretty enough, her pose isn't provocative enough and the dog isn't cute enough. Perhaps French' but it has a very Germanic feel to it !!

Simply signed in pencil "MAX" - who ?? any suggestions. There are faint copyright marks, that suggest a French publisher. Perhaps MAX is a psuedonym; a bit like calling Romain D'Tirtoff - Erte, that is his initals in French -- ErrTaa. Is there an artist whose initals are M.A.X ??
